The University’ Green Impact awards ceremony was held on Wednesday 17 June, and Materials achieved two awards; Silver for the Department and Gold for the Labs! We were one of two Departments within the entire scheme to be presented with two awards, so this is a huge achievement!
The Materials Modelling and Design group has been granted more than 16M CPU-hours direct access to the UK's national supercomputing facility ARCHER to accelerate the development of record-breaking perovskite-based photovoltaic devices.
Cyrille van Effenterre, the Counsellor of the French Embassy, Science and Technology, accompanied by Anne Simonin, the Head of "Maison Française d’Oxford", visited the Department on Friday, 6 March. He attended the weekly meeting of the “Materials for Fusion and Fission Power” group, and gave a presentation about the activities of the Embassy in the science and technology area.
